Comment 3 Evan McNabb 2004-03-16 23:08:00 UTC
I have a friend who has a HP Pavillion zt1135. He had the exact same
error: isolinux: "Image checksum error, sorry..."

This is a firmware / bios problem, not a problem with Linux. Here is
info about the bios update:

HP Pavilion Notebook ZT1135

HP Pavilion ZT1xxx and XZxxx IB and Omnibook IB - BIOS versoin 1.10

Release Date:  2002-09-11   Version:  N/A
This is a self-extracting file which contains the HP notebook system
BIOS IB.M1.10. Download the file to an empty directory and execute it
from Windows. Follow the displayed instructions to create the BIOS
Update Floppy disk. FIXED: Unable to boot from CD's recorded using the
El Torito standard

FedoraCore1 worked just fine after the update.

Comment 4 Peter Jones 2005-04-19 20:36:25 UTC
Yeah, this means the read of the boot file from the CD drive failed.  There's
really nothing we can do, sorry.
